Achievement Motivation: As used in the psychology of religion, it is the role of religion in shaping value orientations and motivation to succeed in classic example is the "Protestant ethic," where hard work and economic success is. Ethics, the philosophical discipline concerned with what is morally good and bad and morally right and wrong. Its subject consists of fundamental issues of practical decision making, and its major concerns include the nature of ultimate value and the standards by which human actions can be morally evaluated.

    The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Religion. William J. Wainwright (Editor), Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. The philosophy of religion as a distinct discipline is an innovation of the last years, but its central topics—the existence and nature of the divine, humankind’s relation to it. A religion is a belief in divine (superhuman or spiritual) being(s) and the practices (rituals) and the moral code (ethics) that result from that belief. Beliefs give religion its mind, rituals give religion its shape, and ethics give religion its heart.

For those who focus upon substantive or essentialist definitions, religion is all about content: if you believe certain types of things you have a religion while if you don’t believe them, you don’t have a religion.
